Energy Materials

Assistant Professor


Prof. Sun’s research seeks to resolve outstanding fundamental scientific problems that impede the computational materials design process. His group uses high-throughput density functional theory, applied thermodynamics, and materials informatics to deepen the fundamental understanding of synthesis-structure-property relationships, while exploring new chemical spaces for functional technological materials. These research interests are driven by the practical goal of the U.S. Materials Genome Initiative to accelerate materials discovery, but whose resolution requires basic fundamental research in synthesis science, inorganic chemistry, and materials thermodynamics.
